May 23rd, 2013


MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says the Interstate 5 bridge over the Skagit River at Mount Vernon has collapsed, dumping vehicles and people into the water.

Trooper Mark Francis says the four-lane bridge collapsed about 7 p.m. PDT.

Francis says he has no immediate estimate of how many people are in the water or whether there are any injuries or deaths.

He doesn’t know what caused the collapse.

A Skagit Valley Herald reporter at the scene says a sheriff’s office rescue boat has arrived and rescue crews are looking for people in the water.

The reporter saw one person sitting atop one vehicle in the water and could see a second vehicle as well.

The newspaper reports that crowds of people are lining the river to watch the scene unfold.
